The headquarters i)f the Nebraska college ol law have
Ill-oil loinovod from the loctuie loom in Nebraska linll to a
room on tlio fifth Hour if the I hi it block. 'Tins scums to
hnvo severed the only connection that ever really existed
between the law school and the university, if, indeed, it ever
was anything more than a mere temporary airangemcnt to
give color to the appiopiintion of state funds for n private
untei prise. Considerable advertising was done piior to the
opening of the fall term of school concerning the so called
"University of Law", but it seems just at present that there
is no such institution in existence. Thcio is a class of law
students down town that, a short time ago. woie privileged
to listen to their lectures in a room of one of the uuiveisity
buildings, and those who lectin c to that class still draw their
pay fiom the state funds; but the students who are here fiom
different pails of the state arc at a loss to discover the pro.
piiety ol discriininiuating against this particular class, unless
it be upon the ground of the law class being under the man
agement and contiol of private petsons, and who adopt the
npiii tic phtme, "University College of Law" foi purely mer
It seems moie just to believe that the law class neer was
the legitimate offspring of university development than to
suppose the inaingcmcnt capable of taking so ipiestionable a
method of disposing of a tioublesome infant. It is ncithei
needful nor proper, for in all probability unjust, to cast any
rolleetion upon the college management, but for the benefit
of any who may not be altogether ignorant of the true stale
ot affaiis, it nmy not be too much to remark that the cloak of
hypociisy sometimes semis thinner to the world than to the
weaiei. Weio it inn loi the inconvenience of inclining the
wiath of the holy inquisition, such as it is, I should like to
say thai but for the monastic atmosphere prevailing the loom
used for chapel exercises, some arrangements might possi
bly have been made for this room and so have kept up
appearances a little longer.
If the members of the law class only will, like good little
boys, tamely and obediently submit to this insult, then they
ought at least to have a loom in the greenhouse. Whatever
pains may be taken in fixing up the new quartois, Miey never
can be equal to those that seemed to be guaranteed to law
students at the beginning of the (nil term.
Those who have contemplated with pleasuie the addition
)f a college of law to the stale university me nmdo In ferl n
little chilly when they see the mc"bers of that class chucked
up under the loof in a little daik tooni in the fifth story of
the Hurt- block.
Whcfher the iiinsi i elations between thU class and the
uuiveisity aie to be maintained or not, it is to be hoped that
the state may in the near fiituic iind means to establish a
college of law in connection with the uuiveisity on a firm
and legitimate basis. I'ikk. W. Chapman.
A Mighty Oulumlty.
On I'liday evening, Jauuiiiy IS, was witnessed .111 eent
must momentous in the history of the university, namely, the
destruction of the "Wind and Whiskei" club. Perhaps, for
the enlightenment of some of the leaders of these columns, it
would be well to make a brief explanation of the oigunialion
and purposes of this club. .The "Wind and Wlnskeis" made
tlicii debut among the secret organizations of the state uni
versity as a icsult of the leap year manipulation of the slate
by the ladies of the several literary societies. The lequhe
ments for membeis'iip were not that each member should
wear a "boiled" shin, a siand up collar, a clean-shaved face,
and eye glasses but, on ;)ic contrary, the beatd nuist lie, iH
east, of a convenient length to allow the wind a fully devel.
oped opportunity of getting in nil of iis ambulating propen
sities. The oiganization of the club was quite extensive and
it could boast of having more members upon its books than
any other secict organization in the uuiveisity. Hut the
"Wind nndVhisker";club is no more, pit has fallen and
great was the fall thereof. Yet the manner ol its destruction
is'both unique .andjnnuising. In tltcvcry midst of exceeding
hllaiity, at a very exciting point in a very interesting game,
one of the'faiiest of the Union's lairest ladies swooped down
ttpoiijthls mighty assembly. It was captuied completely and
the terms jwcrcjuiiconditiounl sut render. The lady then pro
eeeded to lead her captives to the uuiveisity and amid the
applause of the multitude assembled in the Union hall, one bv
one, she led them in and seated them. The "Wind and
Whiskers" arc dead, let them rest in peace.
Now have the grave dug deeply,
And let them rest most sweetly,
I'Yir they lived their life most meekly,
And no moie will they meet weekly.
